Its very sad to see that this country has came to this. It AMAZES me that there are people that dont believe in GOD. I couldnt imagine not having him in my life. He is true and just and is the ALMIGHTY. I guess its going to take judgement day for the unbelievers to see the truth!! I pray for you all!!
Well

Yeah. If your God's so forgiving, he'll get to us at the end of the line, right? Take your religious based fear and my share too. I'd rather put my offering in the hands of a homeless beggar. WWJD?

Many of the founding fathers were at the very least agnostic so this country is probably closer to what they envisioned than you believe. I am AMAZED that in this day and age people still believe in a mythology created by people barely out of the stone age. It AMAZES me that we have a creationist museum in Kentucky that ignores all scientific data and has models of people riding on dinosaurs. It AMAZES me that in the light of all scientific knowledge that there are people who still believe that a book written 2000 years ago is an owners manual delivered to man from a non-existent creator.

I agree with Mindless. With the scientific data we are capable of gathering, data that contradicts the whole Christian religion, I cant believe that anyone can still believe in God. Christianity was invented to control the populous with fear of fiery damnation. It was a political move to increase power to a group of people. The only reason it has stuck around for so long is simply, people fear death. The promise of a utopia after death helps to ease that fear. Hell is used as a means to invoke fear into people who may consider doing something wrong. The world has left behind these radical ideas of a higher being who control's our destiny. If it makes you feel better to believe in something so unfounded as Christianity then that's fine but the fact that I consider it absurd does not make me a bad person, just someone who has enough sense to look at the proven facts. We have documented PROOF that most of the bible is nothing more than a story.

If it's your book, it's your rules, so you can go to your hell. Since I'm a non-believer I don't get to go to hell like 90% of christians are scared is going to happen to them.

your actually wrong. Most founding fathers were very emphatic in their religious beliefs. So much so they emblazoned our money and our founding documents with references to God. The Bill of Rights clearly state our rights are given to us by God not by government. Americans sometimes refer to the separation of church and state as a dismissal of religion but it was actually designed to limit the governments power to influence religion like England had done which in turn protected it. George Washington said that it would be impossible to be president and not defer to a higher power for guidance. However when Bush said he prayed for guidance many anti religious types said he was nuts. As for science disproving religion? Many renown scientists have said that science is proving more and more the existence of a governing higher intelligence, that all the laws of physics and mathematics could not have came from nothingness. If you want to live your life without seeking the comfort of a higher power then that's your business but you don't have to knock those that do. You know the saying there are no atheists in foxholes? Well I can attest to this. I have served in the Marines and it never failed every-time some "atheist" would spout his ideology he was the first one asking for a chaplain to pray with him upon death! What is so problematic in the teaching of Jesus that bothers you? I tell you what, go to church when it's empty, kneel down to Jesus and beg him to influence your life with sincerity, if nothing changes then oh well you wasted a couple minutes and you proved there is no place for God in your life.. If jesus does then great. Either way you win.

Name one reputable scientist that says the Bible is factually accurate. Just one. I never said anything about the teachings of Jesus or their valisity. I think there is "truth" to be found in the Bible. Just as there is truth to be found in the writings of Mark Twain, the poetry of Emily Dickinson, the music of Mozart, and even the jokes of Bill Cosby. "Truth" is not sacrosanct and is not only to be found in the pages of the Bible. I do not eliminate the possibility of a higher intellect but reject the mythology and superstitions of Christian dogma. If there is a higher intellect that created the Universe I guarantee you it holds no resemblance to the mythic God of Christian theology. I can accept a REASONABLE existence of some higher power but I refuse to live my life according to a set of crazy superstitions formulated by men who had no knowledge of science.

out of that whole statement you only picked up on the only statement that you could prove wrong. Typical. Go back to George Washington and John Adams memoirs. They speak in very certain terms about God and government. Btw, references to God was on many monies before 1952. In fact it was on coins as far back as 1864.

You have probably heard of Einstein...

Einstein was famous for for stating the universe was created. He stated "I want to know how God created this world". He also stated "science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind."

no they are your rules too, you can choose not to obey them and that is free will that God gave you. However there are consequences. Ignoring the rules is to be expected by some and the bible calls this the sin of pride. It's what got Lucifer thrown from heaven and Adam and Eve lost paradise because of it. Even apostle Paul refused to believe at one time. Btw, for someone that doesn't believe you sure get adamant about not believing which is really an admission of belief mixed with rejection. If you truly didn't believe it wouldn't really bother you so much. Disbelief and rejection are two different things. One can believe but reject god. One can truly not believe in god. Which are you?

No these are not my rules! I do not believe that God is real so therefor the bible is nothing more than a storybook. If YOU choose to believe in this then that is up to you. YOU can choose to live your life by the rules of this book. I am not entitled to mold myself based on your belief's. I reject the narrow minded people like you who think it is your job to push your belief's off on others. What about the time before Christianity? People believed in Gods and Goddesses who ruled over everyone. Were was God or Christianity then? It hadn't been invented yet! What about the scientific data that puts the earth here long long before there was human life? If God built the world in seven days then the earth would be as old as mankind. What about evolution ( a proven fact?) Even the way the bible depicts Jesus being crucified is bogus. Being bound by a nail through his hands would not have supported his weight. It is not physically possible for a person to go 40 days and 40 nights without food and water. There are so many things that are obviously fabricated. I simply refuse to base my life on decrees from a book that I consider fiction. So no I am not bound by the rules written in your book, I don't need a fictional God to teach me right from wrong, my parents did that. I don't have to fear hell because nobody knows what is beyond death, and the promise of some magical make belief kingdom doesn't make it any easier to die. Its a great story and a lot of people make it work, but I don't have to. So please don't try to say that these are my rules to follow cause I call BS!!!
